Global Youth & News Media, founded in 2018, aims to strengthen the linkages between young people and news media through three kinds of actions: honoring news media that truly serve the young, promoting media literacy through a journalistic prism and amplifying the journalism of young people.
The Global Youth & News Media Prize, begun in 2018, honors organizations that innovate as they strengthen engagement between news media and the young while reinforcing the role of journalism in society. In short, we celebrate and encourage news media work that serves, supports and both attracts and learns from young audiences. The 2021 edition features the Journalism Award: Pandemic News for Children Award and The Planet Award, for reporting or initiatives that effectively provide young audiences with information and hope for saving the planet.
